Knowing our risk and how to reduce it helps us to stay healthy.
Support for Children & Youth
Children’s Hospitals across Canada support diabetes prevention among children and youth through the operation of the Meant2Prevent website. This hub features evidence-based, pediatric-focused resources on healthy living and type 2 diabetes prevention for both healthcare professionals and families.
Support for Adults
The programs below offer support to individuals 18 years of age or over to lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes for both themselves and their family members.
During the COVID-19 Pandemic diabetes prevention support is still being provided by some organizations. Some changes may have made to how the service is provided (e.g. over the phone instead of in person) and to what services can be offered at this time. If you need support please click on the green “Get Connected” box below.
